My family has been coming to Napili Kai since the 1970s. There is a reason we've been returning for over 30 years and why my future husband and I have chosen to get married on Maui and invited both of our families to stay at Napili Kai. This is the true, unhurried, friendly Hawaii experience you won't find at a... More

We just returned from a lovely five-night stay at Napili Kai. Our room was beautiful and spacious, the bed was comfortable, and we loved the spacious patio overlooking the ocean. The resort is extremely well-run: the grounds and beach are meticulously maintained, the concierge is pleasant and informative, and our room seemed to be made up every day the moment... More

Every time we walk into the Napili Kai lobby to check-in, we relax immediately; it's like coming home. (After many visits here, it would be nice to be remembered, but I digress.) This is Hawaii like it used to be: slow and unhurried. No water slides or wristbands here. If you seek beauty, natural surroundings, and authenticity, Napili Kai delivers.... More

Was in Maui in a condo style room on the main floor and we encountered a cockroach in the room at night, moved to another similar room and encountered the same problem, we talked to front desk, no help offered, learned after that this is not unusual in this old style resort. However has to say the beach was wonderful.... More

The most amazing view friendly staff and perfect place to paddleboard and snorkel! The restaurant was fabulous order the crater pancake! Nice clean rooms and enjoyed the room with the king bed by the ocean with two teens the back! The original room we were in was the opposite format and the beds were sofas so I would request other...

This is our second time staying at Napili Kai and this time it was even better than the first. Last time we had a basic hotel room which hadn't been updated in a while. Still, we liked the view to the ocean across the putting green and enjoyed the beach and the resort as whole. This time we reserved a... More

This resort came highly recommended on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint!!! Absolutely stunning view from our balcony, beautiful grounds, and what a location! Right on a beautiful beach! Our room was very spacious with a well-equipped updated kitchen, an updated bath, and lovely vaulted ceiling. The lanai was so nice! Snorkeling was great right on this beach, but... More

We paid a little more and got the oceanfront studio. It was very clean and equiped with what we needed. They didn't leave out a thing. I loved the electronic shades for our floor to ceiling windows. The ocean view with sunsets and sunrises daily were breathtaking. I took so many pics. The heated pool was not warm enough. We... More

The reception we received at the hotel was lovely with the staff being very welcoming and friendly. they were quick to check us in and advise where various facilities were. The room was large and adequate and to our surprise we were upgraded... More

This was our first family tropical vacation. I have stayed in Kaanapali years ago with my family as a kid. That area has definitely been built up and seems very busy and commercial now. Napili Beach is definitely smaller but much nicer than Kaanapali and more protected in my mind. It does get quite busy and crowded some days though.... More
